John Curtas says: “Best Jap-German collaboration since 1941” and says nothing’s wrong

A fine look at how the art of satire was sullied by an ignoramus who denies his ignorant. Typical. “Satirist” John Curtas claims that language should not be taken so seriously, but isn’t that ironic when satirists thrive and live on language?

Mr. Curtas, do you know what satire is? Satire is used to critique society for the betterment of it, to fix it. Where was your social message in your tweet? Don’t tarnish the name of satire to cover up your ignorance and bigotry. You don’t need to be a history major to understand the tensions between the Japanese and the Germans. You knew the response you’d get from saying “Japs”. Why are you so shocked then?

Ladies and gentlemen, satire is an art form used to critique and advance society, not to just take a jab.

This type of hit-and-run is not satire. It’s called bigotry.

GTA weather’s always fun to drive in

What better weather to drive in than pouring rain and lightning?



Especially since I haven’t driven in over a year, and my license expires in a month and 2 weeks?!

Yeah, it was frightening. And out of the 3 times I was asked to parallel park, twice there were 3 cars either backing out of their driveways or on the road and waiting for me to be done.



On the other hand, I think I drove rather well today despite the weather and scary people. Nobody honked at me :)

I wish the GTA had better public transit. Driving is scary.


My Serenade to Sola

Sola is someone I met on tumblr who is very sweet, talented, smart, and pretty. :) We became bffs within like 2 days of talking to each other.

She drew me a really pretty portrait of my selfie.



SHE EVEN ADDED SPARKLES. And she said I was a Disney princess.


So as a thank-you gift, I wrote and sang her a song to the tune of “Hey Soul Sister” from Train.

I only had one attempt so… yeah, please don’t let your ears bleed too much.

Here’s the link to my song “The Prettiest Sunflower”, because somehow WordPress isn’t letting me upload my MP3.
